Even as celebrities in Kollywood have been contributing to Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) and various unions to support daily-wage workers in the industry during the lockdown, they have also been doing their bit to aid needy in the state. Recently, actors Sriman and Thalapathi Dinesh distributed ration to about 1500 people in Chennai.
A source in the know says, “Vishal and other Nadigar Sangam members recently donated one month’s ration supplies to about 1500 people in Chennai. Sriman and Thalapathi distributed it to people on behalf of the Nadigam Sangam. Plan is on to distribute ration to people in other districts as well. They also gave groceries and other essentials to 300 transgenders. They also gave 1000 gloves and 1000 masks for sanitization workers who are working to contain the spread of COVID-19. These arrangements were made by Vishal’s fans association chief Hari.”
